Beyond the Gates

I'd sooner go beyond the gates
Not to stand and stare
I'd sooner know what's on my plate
Not no longer know nor care
Because fear's calling out my name

I know I've never rolled my dice
I'm yet to kiss and blow
Standing on the banks as cold as ice
Watching the cold river flow
While fear's calling out my name

I waited far too long for the writing of this song
Nobody's in my way, I was just frightened of being wrong

Under any circumstance
We're all but flesh and blood
And we're all up against chance
We'll never stop the flood
And fear's calling all of our names
Nobody here really knows what's out beyond the gates


from First Aid for the Drowning, released December 31, 2015
